The Legend of Mick Dodge is a reality docu-series that follows the day to day activities of Mick Dodge. Mick, also known as the "the Barefoot Sensei", walked away from modern society twenty-five years ago to live in the rainforest of the Pacific Northwest. The show demonstrates how this fun loving character lives truly off of the land, and the adventures he finds himself into from one day to the next. The life Mr. Dodge lives is so foreign from the life that most people live that it could be considered educational. From how he finds and gathers food to where he makes his shelter. A pinecone may not seem like much to you, but to Mick that can serve as a toothbrush. A mushroom with a concaved cap can become a drinking fountain. The show uses a narrator to help move the story along, but it's Mick's enthusiasm and love of nature that is the focus of the series. He is a man that seems to have found peace and happiness living in the wilderness like our ancestors did millennia ago. The show offers a glimpse into a world few of us will ever know.
